New Homework Club event starting in January at Peace!
In partnership with Lutheran Social Services and Annandale Christian Community for Action, we will begin hosting a homework club on the 2nd and 4th Saturday morning of each month from 10-11:30 am beginning on January 12th. Attendees will mostly be families who are new to the school system in the United States; volunteers are needed to transport families, help kids with homework and reading, mentor mothers, and provide/serve snacks.
All ages are welcome to volunteer; an easy background check is required for anyone over 18. To begin the volunteer process you MUST contact Nadia first. Once your background check is complete you can attend a volunteer training session before the first event January 12th at 9:00am.
We are in need of new or gently used car/booster seats for all ages! If your child has outgrown their seat, please consider donating it for the use of transporting families to and from the homework clubs we are starting at Peace in January. Seats can be dropped off in the narthex on Sunday morning or at the office during the week. Contact Nadia for questions.
Also, be sure to check out our full church calendar.
